Unless your front loader is set firmly on concrete and leveled to perfection, the force of a heavy wash load spinning in excess of 1000rpm will create a bit of vibration and noise.A firm footing is your best defense against to much movement.

I have a Roper ras7133kq1, top load washer. About 3 months ago I replaced the lid switch because it wouldn't drain or spin. Now it will ONLY spin, it won't fill with water or agitate, the only way...


If it won't fill you will need to replace the "water inlet valve" on the back of the unit. The unit will only agitate if it gets the signal from the water level pressure switch.
Here is the valve to order.

Washing machine will not drain water


Here are some basic troubleshooting steps you can follow to help you determine why your washing machine won't drain:

1. Check the drain hose in the back of the machine and make sure it isn't kinked or flattened.

2. If it spins but won't drain, there could be a piece of fabric stuck between the inner and outer tub, or even the drain hose or pump itself. The farther into the machinery a clog goes, the trickier it can be to remove. It could also be a faulty timer.

3. Are clothes soaked at the end of the wash, even though it appears to go through the spin and drain cycles? Worn or loose belts could be the culprit.

4. When the spin cycle starts, do you hear a humming noise? It could be a faulty or jammed impeller pump.

For more suggestions on troubleshooting and fixing this issue, check out Washing machine not draining. I hope this helps!

Won't spin out water but pump works


There are several reasons that a washing machine won't drain or spin. The cause could be something as easy as a clog or something difficult that will need a licensed repairman. Start with the simplest possible cause and work down to the more difficult causes.

1.A washing machine won't spin if the water can't drain. Check hoses for any kinks or clogs that may prevent the water from draining. If a hose has kinks, try to straighten out the kinked hose. If it can't be straighten sufficiently, replace the hose. If hoses are not kinked, check for clogged hoses. This can be done by using the screwdrivers to remove the hoses and looking for clogs or running a water hose through the clogged hose to remove the clog. Use the rags and bucket to clean up the water that comes out of the hoses when they are disconnected. Once the clog is cleared, put the drain hose back into place. The washer should drain and spin now if a clogged or kinked hose was the problem.
2.If the washer still won't drain or spin, check to see if the lid is not closing all the way or if the lid switch is not clicking into place. Close the lid and make sure that it closes all the way down. When the lid closes, the lid switch should click. If there is no clicking sound, then the switch may need to be replaced. Follow manufacturer's directions for replacing the switch. If the lid does not close all the way, visually check for signs that the lid is bent. If bent, try to bend it back into place.3.Loose or broken belts could also prevent a washing machine from draining or spinning. Pull the washer away from the wall and, using the screwdrivers and wrenches, remove the back panel. Using the flashlight, visually check for any broken or loose belts. Replace any broken or loose belts. Although replacing washing machine belts is difficult, anyone who has replaced belts on a car, lawn mower or even a bicycle chain should be able to accomplish the task.
4.Another possibility for a washing machine to not spin or drain is the pump. With the back panel still off the washer, check the pump with the voltmeter to ensure that the pump is getting power. If the washer is getting power, turn on the washer and listen to find out if the pump is running but the water is still not draining. It may be necessary to remove the pump and clean it or to replace the pump with a new one. Once the pump is replaced, turn on the washer to determine if it will now drain and spin.
5.If all of the above steps fail to produce a washing machine that drains or spins, then it is time to call a professional repairman. Use the screwdrivers and wrenches to replace the panel on the washer and push it back against the wall.

LE comes up on the display window halfway through cicle.


IE is a water inlet error. It could be that your water valves are plugged as you suspect. What you can do is put the unit into a test mode and check your valves to see that they are working once you have checked your hoses and connections.
Make sure unit is empty and never try this with anything inside.
press and hold Spin Speed and Soil Level then press on and release
press the start button to advance
1 time tumbles
2 low spin
3 high spin
4 prewash valve (once spinning has stopped valve will turn on)
5 main wash
6 hot water
7 bleach, should be a lesser flow as it has a restrictor
8 tumble counter clockwise
9 temp in tub
10 drain
11 off
if your hoses are clean and the filters, and your water pressure is good, you may have a bad valve.
note, before it starts the door lock will engage.
